As of last week December 5th I turned the sweet ol’ 24 years. The fact that I’m 24 even thinking about it is crazy, because I still get asked for my ID for like everything, like I am getting old & time is flying. For crying out loud my little brother looks older than me. I feel like I was just in high school yesterday, now I’m just a college graduate, like what ? Now I keep thinking “Wow, I’m almost 25, meaning I’m literally almost 30, which is close to 50, which is basically 75” I need to relax on that though and enjoy 24, ha! I compiled a list of things I learned throughout my years. Although my husband laughed at my list, it’s all actually true
- For the love of God, wear your retainers
- If you have to think about it, don’t buy it
- The Lifetime Movie channel is heaven sent
- Dogs are needed in life
- Announcing your accomplishments & future plans are not for the world to know. People can be spiteful
- Be nice to people. A simple “Hi” can make their day
- Cooking home meals beat takeout
- Cleaning keeps you balanced
- Prayers work, if consistent
- Lazy days are needed
- Drinking water & minding your business makes life easier
- Don’t worry about how far along others are in life. Your different so your path will be different
- Exercise to keep healthy & active not just looks
- You can’t satisfy everybody
- Get a hobby
- Do what makes YOU happy
- Sometimes you got to say how you really feel
- Stay faithful to your hair dresser
- Bills suck
- Stop worrying about things you can’t control
- Have a taco or two or five
- Travel, work is cool and all but a break is cool too
- No one will ever do your eyebrows as good as you.
- TREAT YOURSELF
HAPPY 2016! Time flew by just like my skirt that I wore this past week. It’s so strange it’s December and I had the nerve to wear the following things; skirts, slip on’s and sweaters (no coats). This winter started of very strange here in New York it felt more like fall. I took advantage however and wore my skirts and went on about my business, don’t get me wrong I love doing that but I really want it to snow. Like Hello? Snow? Where are You?
During the summer I purchased this blue suede fridge crazy looking skirt. I am beyond happy I did it’s beautiful, only disappointing thing is it’s pretty large on me although I ordered the smallest size, yikes. Eventually I will have to take it to a tailor to take off some inches, so I can where it with other tops other than sweaters as pictured. It’s getting cold so I am glad I was able to get to where this one last time before the actual cold front hits. Once again Happy New Year!

2 posts? In one day? What!!!
Okay as promised here’s a Gift Guide but for HER
now. I have a bit of a theme going on here with the all black, but I can’t help it. I have a couple of male followers that will thank me later, so you’re welcome in advance. All of the items are under $80 with the exception of one (those booties) in the image above only reason I put them there is because look at them they look good but here’s an alternative that cost less plus I’m extremely frugal so if you’re like me I’d go with these (similar here
) looks alike only difference is your bank account won’t suffer as much. Your mom, grandma, sister, friend, anybody would enjoy.
Well well well look at what we have here. It’s a post written from me, to you guys can you believe it because I sure can’t! Today marks two years of me setting up this page. Look forward to tomorrow’s post, I’ll post a huge thanks to you all, posting schedule and life updates. See you of the flip side!

Last week was one of the most exciting weeks I’ve had this summer. Well, it’s a pretty easy explanation for that and it’s because I finally got to see my then boyfriend (i’ll explain why I said that later). For almost 5 months he’s been away in Georgia at basic training; the writing hand letters, speaking briefly for a couple minutes on the phone and etc are pretty much over. This was perhaps a huge milestone in his life and I’m happy I was able to make it and share the moment.There were 2 graduations I guess you can say. One was the Turning Blue ceremony, marking they’re infantry and the next day was the graduation. Georgia was freaking hot, the humidity was insane my hair didn’t last not even 10 minutes stepping out the airplane that was perhaps the only downfall. Other than that everything was pretty cool, the hotel, the foods and even the museum the National Infantry Museum, I think it’s a must see. Everyone was telling me how great it was and that I had to check it out. Luckily I was able to do so. Overall, the trip was good but like mentioned the heat was just … not nice at all. Here are some moments, I wish I could share them all … all 200 of them but I can’t and won’t, but enjoy these few that I had captured along the way.
Oh, and reason I said my then boyfriend earlier is because he’s my fianceé now ….. he did it he asked the big question. He did perhaps the best job picking out both engagement ring and band, because this ring definitely screams my names; simple, so sparkly and white gold. Absolutely freaking perfect!!!!! Now I just feel like it’s mandatory to have my nails done at all times now.
As Rick Flair would say “Woooooooooooo”
It is hot as heck out in New York I mean like really. Me being the winter person that I am, I definiteley do not like the hot weather I feel icky, stick and gross. And not to mention the sweat, well I’m use to the sweat since I work out 5 days out of the week but regardless ugh it’s hot! Today I got my hair done at the salon for the first time in about a month, because it’s hot so I just do it at home the other times. And I feel gooood. I’ve seen growth in my hair I was surprised, not to mention I almost cut it again today but I didn’t. I look in the mirror right now and I can see why people assume it’s fake, but it’s not promise hehe. Scroll on down and check out my post on how to grow that bad boy out.
Okay, anywaysince I was feeling myself a tad bit I decided why not post a little something. I honestly have so many summer clothing that I don’t even know I have until I open my drawer. Spotted this cute colorful small number I got not to long ago … well my mom did (Thanks Mom) at Marshall’s and I just love how these shorts are bright and short but not too short. I have a serious problem going into stores such as H&M, The Gap etc finding shorts then trying them on and there way to short. I don’t know how you gals do it but I can’t.
Last but not least, thanks running for giving me killer legs that I love.
